Additional Information

Oxford's new American Dictionaries for learners of English offer students a dictionary that is just right for their level. Written specifically for students working to improve their English language skills, these dictionaries support English learners, struggling readers, and special education students with Basic to Advanced levels. Based on extensive research with U.S. teachers and language-learning experts, these three new dictionaries help students:

Transition from picture dictionaries more easily by using words they can understand for definitions and using illustrations for more difficult words.

Learn content area words from math, chemistry, biology, geography, etc.

Focus on the Academic Word List and the Oxford 3000TM(the most important words to learn in English).

Extend their vocabulary with extra help note boxes throughout the dictionary- help with related vocabulary synonyms, topic collocations, Academic Word List collocations, and word families, affixes, and more.

Write different types of texts in English, from resumes to e-mails to essays, with the Writing Tutor (Intermediate and Advanced levels only).

Included in each dictionary is a CD-ROM containing a separate Picture Dictionary and a Topic Dictionary, allowing students to search for words by content area or topic, and create their own topic dictionaries. The full A-Z dictionary is included with spoken headwords and a 'record your own voice' function for practicing pronunciation.

Although I've given this dictionary four stars, I'm really disappointed with this book.
The contents are great, this dictionary will help to improve your English, no question about it. Even though there are some flaws like horrible thin yellow paper (it's pretty transparent), a clumsy cover and pale printing I could almost love this book.
The tiny printing type this is what nearly ruined this dictionary for me. It could be way more better for its cost (41 dollars!) if printed with just a little bigger font. If I'd known about its quality I wouldn't have bought it. Not impressed.
Update. 05.05.2016

The book turned out to be pretty sturdy for how flimsy its pages look. The paper pages are made of is reeeealy thin but surprisingly durable. Now you can get it for half price (whereas I got it for $41 2 y.a.) which makes it a no-brainer.
The dictionary is nice and contains a CD which is very helpful. One important thing for me was that the entries contain IPA which is unfortunately not self-evident. However, you can still tell that it is a "Learners' Dictionary" as I've already encounter enough words that weren't in the dictionary.
I have used Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary since high school. It is a great dictionary, but it did not focus on American English. This new Advanced American Dictionary is what I have been looking for. Better yet, the computer version of this dictionary that came with the book is so easy to use. I find a new way to use Dictionary on PC every week. In fact, I use this Dictionary on my PC more often than the book. The CD-ROM itself is already worth the money I spent.
